Are there any other young broadcasters (as in, young for broadcasters, I realize Cohen is old for a normal person) who have a similar combination of dedication, quality, and voice?
So, what you're saying is that the Mets have a 5hitty product wonderfully presented while the yankees have had a good product presented like merde.
He's always just seemed to dorky for me to really respect.
The Mets were a winning team (coming off an 100 win season) when Cohen joined them. The Yankees were a losing team (coming off a 91 loss season) in Kay's first season in the Bronx.
Kay is a terrible play-by-play man and even worse when he starts editorializing but he's at least a good traffic cop in the booth. And several of the Yankee analysts are, IMHO, pretty good: Cone, especially but also Leiter, O'Neill and even Singleton. In fact, the best YES booth is basically any combination of the first three analysts, with Singleton doing PBP. The worst is Kay doing PBP with Flaherty--who is inoffensive if deadly dull--as the analyst.
Gary can be a little too traditional at times, and rather baseballier-than-thou others, but he's still just about the best there currently is, so we live with it happily.
He was hard on Lastings Milledge, but then it turned out that Milledge really did suck, so I guess it's ok.
